Editorial: Inspire kids with Madison County success stories

(Continued)

It’s one thing for a youngster to admire a talented artist, athlete or business icon from afar. It’s quite another to see one up close and personal and to realize they came from where you are.

Slonim’s recent visit to Tenth Street School was fun for the kids and left them dreaming about what they might accomplish. And if kids can dream it, they can do it.

 

In summary It's inspiring to know that Madison County folks have enjoyed success in a wide variety of fields. We have to remind ourselves of it -- and make sure that our kids know.
